We stayed for 4 days (3 nights) in hotel Sant Jordi *** in Calella. Only a short drive from Barcelona, less then one hour. Rent a car or take the train. We had a rental car from El Prat aeroporte and took the nice beach road NII. Hotel Sant Jordi is easy to find, one of the first hotels on your right hand side after entering Calella. Also the signs are good and clear. Parking can be done free in front of the hotel.
Reception was not busy. Everything went very quick. The staff is really friendly (we even asked them to call the car rental company for a question, in Spanish off course!). We bought a safe lock for 3 days (7,50 euro) and wifi for 3 days (also 7,50 euro). Although thats a low price for the safe and wifi, but I think both this services should be free... The wifi is good, also in the rooms. The room is not big, but certainly ok. Most important: everything is clean. 2 beds, a big flatscreen, the safe, a fridge, a lounge chair, the balcony with seats and a big closet. Also important and in lots of hotels this is a problem, you can make the room very dark. Good to sleep in! Bathroom is fine. Enough towels and a few amenities like, hairbrush, shavingset, toothbrush and shampoo. Rooms can be a little noisy. Rooms and towels were cleaned everyday.
About the food. We had half pension. So breakfast and dinner. If I give the dinner a number, it would be just a normal 7. They have about 3 sorts of warm food. Little tip, come early! ok, it's eatable, but not special. Salad, desert, bread etc is good. You have to pay for your drinks! Breakfast is good. Lots of choose, warm and cold. This was just fine. Free coffee and tea.
The beach is only a 5 minutes walk and easy to reach. You have to pass the train track, but there are a lot of tunnels, so no problem. The beach is very big, space for everybody. Few beach restaurants, bed rentals, lots of beach activities (banana boat, Parasailing etc.) and showers/toilets. The city center starts at the hotel and can be walked within the hour. Lots to see and lots of shops. Or take the little tourist train :)!
The hotel has also a Spa, you can use it free everyday (one time a day), during your whole stay. We didn't use it. Next to the Spa is a big 50 meter swimming pool. It brings lots of swimming team/groups to the area. We had a few in the hotel and then it can be a little noisy/busy.
